Spike’s annual Video Game Awards are upon us tonight, and the television broadcaster is promising us a completely revamped show full of more developers, more gaming, more trailers, and fewer musical acts.

We’ve had a chance to really look at the nominee list and wanted to put together our picks for who should win in each category (we’ve bolded our choice for the winner – some categories have two winners because we’re indecisive and love games that much). We’d love if you let us know who you think should win! Be sure to share everything on Twitter with #VGX!
